(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Dribbling, passing, and shooting.

Those are just some of the fundamentals young campers learned at Kris Humphries basketball camp at the Rochester Family Y Monday.

"I really feel I learned a lot. It's my first year with my brother, so he learned a lot, too. It was a fun time to come together and play with other kids," said camper Treyon Williams.

Humphries, a former Minnesota Gopher, has been putting on clinics at the Y the past 3 years.

"It's fun to interact with the kids," said Humphries.

Not only does Humphries hope to teach these kids more about basketball, but he also hopes to be a positive role model in their lives as well.

"I think of myself as just a regular dude who works out and plays basketball, but I know a lot of kids think of NBA players as more than that," said Humphries.

And as a young player just learning the game, there isn't anything cooler than learning from a star.

"I've been playing basketball for a long time and getting to see him is making me want to be better, and keep on pushing towards being a better player," said Williams.

"It's just about having fun and learning that working hard, whether it's in school or in basketball, is a life skill that you need," said Humphries.
